Went here solo for breakfast and felt very comfortable. There were so many items on the menu. Workers were friendly & fantastic. I only waited a few minutes for my food and it was delicious.

Excellent place for breakfast. Delicious food and huge variety! Wish we could've also tried the lunch menu which had huge healthy options also.

Good service. Great food. They have excellent vegan and vegetarian options. We ordered the chili omelet with tofu for my vegan husband and I ordered the veggie delite omelet for myself.

I had the lox benedict, and it was delicious. Although the restaurant was busy, the food came quickly and our party of 6 was served very well. Will definitely return

I had breakfast here when I visited Santa Monica. The classic egg Benedict was awesome! And a server was really handsome here ...lol

Inexpensive breakfast food--but arrive after 9 am on holidays and be prepared to wait. Some wait staff are fantastically speedy; some not so quick. But very reasonable for the area.

Perfect walk from our hotel (Loews) and great good. Unfortunately, service was a little rough but the food made up for it. Would definitely recommend.

YUMM. The food was delicious! The eggs Benedict was on point as well as the yucatan quesadilla. Also try the pea guacamole, It's very tasty! Our waiter was really nice and brought us everything very fast, the food came out really quickly. Everything on the menu looks just as good and so does the food on the tables next to mine.

This place is so good. Honestly, I'm hesitant to leave this review because I don't want it to get even more crowded than it gets, but it deserves the kudos!!
The pancakes are fantastic. Which ones you ask? ALL OF THEM! Pick any one, they're all so so good. Their potatoes, eggs, omelettes, their COFFEE!!!! It puts Starbucks to shame.
Service is excellent too, they go out of their way to make you happy. Can't wait to go back!

We were planning on spending the day at Pacific Park in Santa Monica but wanted something to eat first. When we parked our car at Santa Monica place, I did a 1 mile radius search on Yelp for breakfast and found Jinky's.
We got there on a Saturday at 10:00 and it was pretty crowded but the host was able to get a table for 4 really quick.
Service was fast and quick where they got us out of there within 45 minutes of sitting, ordering and eating where we didn't not feel rushed at all. We ordered the following:
Kids Chicken Tenders with fries ($7) - good size tenders with yummy fries
Popeye Scramble Chicken Breakfast with Tator Tots ($12.49) - it was good, my husband liked it. Lots of spinach, chicken, tomatoes and onions.
Sherman Oaks Omelet with Tator Tots ($11) - it was good. It was filled with spinach, garlic and mushrooms.
Coffee ($3.50) - coffee was really, really, really bitter.
Iced Tea ($2.75) - I love passion iced tea :)
All in all we liked the place, the service was great and the food was decent. But I will never get the coffee again.

Love the gluten free options that are available here. Extensive menu with plenty of options.

I had originally written about an inattentive host and my displeasure with how he handled seating. However, I really shouldn't have let that cast a shadow over the many wonderful breakfast items at Jinky's. The owner contacted me shortly after inviting me to discuss the matter with him. I never did, but do appreciate his care and dedication to his business. Jinky's is a great place and I hit it on off day. Eat here. It is definitely worth it.
11/15/2015 ***** Itati V. Los Angeles, CA
Tried Jinky's for the first time this morning and it was a pleasant experience. For a Sunday we did not wait to be seated or for our food. I had an ice blended mocha and the flakey french toast; the ice blended mocha was delish and the french toast was okay. My boyfriend had the huevos rancheros and he loved them. Because he has gastritis he cannot consume a lot of spicy foods but he said the eggs were a perfect level of spicy. The potatoes were also okay; next time we will opt for the tots instead. Every server is very attentive to your every need so I will definitely be back :)

Ordered breakfast day after Halloween. Kind of busy,but service was quick and the waiter was great. Coffee came out quickly which was really important & the pot was refilled quickly. Ordered pigs in a blanket. and eggs Benedict . So many yummy things on the menu, we had a hard time deciding. Great service.
11/1/2015 ***** Tani P. Los Angeles, CA
Dependably good food & speedy service. Typically a 15-30 minute wait for brunch on weekends, but worth it. The menu has great variety without being overwhelming, and you can't go wrong with their homemade chili.
10/25/2015 ***** Melissa M. Dallas, TX
Stopped in a year ago and loved it. Second time around it's still amazing! I ordered the Santa Fe Scramble (again) with ranchero sauce. My sister ordered the Huevos Rancheros which said they were spicy but we both didn't think so. (We are from Texas). We both tried to order the cappuccino from last year but they hadn't ever heard of it. :( so sad. The barista tried to make it but it wasn't the same. The mint lemonade was to die for!!! This place is sooooo good!
10/18/2015 ***** Jane M
The menu is extensive so asked what the popular items were. I ordered the healthy white & green omelette. Yum!! And healthy. Win win.
Kids had the pancakes and they ate them all. Don't get the chocolate pancakes for the kids. Get the choc chip. The waitress gave us that tip.

Went with a friend to do some work this afternoon and she couldn't believe I had never been. Jinky's was great! As a vegetarian I am some what skeptical at trying places without having a glance at the menus first... Because some places just aren't veggie friendly. This place not only served breakfast all day but had a pretty extensive vegetarian and vegan menu! I was thrilled. I got the veggie omelette w veggie chroizo and it was bomb. Only complaint I had was their wifi was out and I needed to get some work done. Otherwise it was great!

After a long walk on the pier I decided to stop by for some breakfast.
There was no wait however there was a lot of people in the restaurant.
We were greeted by very nice servers at the front which is a plus for me. I hate seeing miserable waiters.
I ordered an omelette with tots and a French toast. The tots were so damn good and crispy like I like it. Everything was very delicious and came out very quick.
The food is very reasonable and worth coming here.

Great service! Great food! Great people. I love this place its so delicious...this location always seems to be hiring but I don't live close enough to apply):
10/2/2015 **** Katrina C. Marina del Rey, CA
I personalized a scramble for myself at Jinky's with feta, turkey bacon, and green onions with a side of tots.
Not only did I enjoy the customizable option because it was delicious.... But oh my goodness the tots!! They were seriously so good.
9/28/2015 **** Valerie L. Dallas, TX
If you are looking for pleeeeenty of options, this place has more options than a super fine dude in a LA nightclub.
It took awhile to decide but I had a mocha latte and the yucatan quesadillas. It was a lot for one person. Overall good breakfast spot because there aren't many in this particular area.
9/25/2015 ***** Kimmy H. El Segundo, Los Angeles, CA
AM breakfast sandwich to go...on the run my son had the potatoes and chicken apple sausage, cheddar cheese, tomato on sourdough bread. He said it's delicious!!!
I took a few bites yummy. Enjoy!

I can't believe I've never tried Jinky's before. A great place for breakfast for any meal! Okay, so I didn't get breakfast when I went, but I wish I had!
I ordered a salad with tandoori chicken tikka, which was very good. The dressing was a mint yogurt dressing, which tasted light, but was a little thick for my liking. The salad itself didn't even need dressing!
The omelets looked soooo good. One of my friends got an omelette on the specialty menu, which had fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil. The benedicts looked amazing as well.
There really is so much to choose from, and this location is conveniently located in downtown Santa Monica.

Breakfast was very good. Created my own omelette, Paola had waffles with eggs.
Service was on point, fast and friendly. Would definitely come back for breakfast.

I had the Mac N' Cheese breakfast. It was amazing!
8/12/2015 ***** Marta H. Los Angeles, CA
Love love love Jinky's for both breakfast and lunch. Great selection of daily chili's as well as sausages. Great vegan & vegetarian options as well.
Come early for breakfast on any weekend day & be prepared to wait, but always well worth it!

Are you a man, in Sherman Oaks, wanting to date a healthy eating yogi? Does this yogi tell you she's too busy and can't meet with you because she has yoga class?
Jinky's is your answer. It's .3 miles away from Corepower yoga, is open 7:30AM-9PM daily, and has healthy options. Recommend the simple but delicious Healthy scramble - it has TOFU! Ask for Sriracha and she will be impressed.
I am passing on knowledge my then acquaintance and now husband imparted onto me.
7/8/2015 **** Andy S. Memphis, TN
We were starving and trying to find somewhere new to go so we stumbled upon this place. It's breakfast and lunch only, I think. They serve breakfast all day. They have all typical breakfast items.
I had the crab cake Benedict. It was good and filling. It comes with their signature potatoes which are basically fried potatoes. They have a breakfast Mac n cheese that sounded interesting. Service was just OK to be honest. For being near a touristy area, the prices are good. I'd go here again.
6/26/2015 ***** Dana W. Cleveland, OH
I was seated right away, had excellent service, and the Salmon Benedict was delicious. I can see how some folks may have had less than stellar service if the restaurant is busy. I did have to wait a while for my check, but it wasn't awful.
6/24/2015 **** Tom M. Los Angeles, CA
Solid place for breakfast or brunch, with a wide variety and a number of vegetarian / vegan options.
7/16/2015 **** Brandi A. Santa Ana, CA
If you're looking to have a meal before shopping or walking around Santa Monica, Jinky's is a nice quaint little place that serves breakfast ALL day! Good food.
Santa Fe Omelette

Yum and yum
Breakfast with tater tots
We stopped on a Sunday morning before some shopping - there is no problem with them moving you right on along - great service
And 4 pages of breakfast choices are crazy good.
Strong cup of coffee and did I mention tater tots - it is such a Southern California thing.
Nothing we had was bad
Eggs omlets bacon and tots
3/6/2015 ***** Vette H.Los Angeles, CA
I am gluten free not by choice and the pancakes here are amazing. The service is always great and the waitresses/waiters polite. It gets packed in the morning on Sunday, so get there early. It's first come first seated. The coffee is also amazeballs...no cream needed. It's a great breakfast spot for me.

Great breakfasts, stayed just round the corner at Hotel Carmel and came here every morning for breakfast, pancakes in particular were very good. AND BAD
